FRIDAY DECEMBER 14 1906 No 22 INHERITANCE TAX Bill Has Been Introduced in Low j er House of Congress New Japanese Treaty on Same Basis as Chinese Plan Talked Of lIprllll tll Till fy1rdlKAYp Washington D C Dec 12Con gress has gotten started in good shape and the only trouble withone who is trying to keep abreast of hap penings under the dome is to select the most interesting of the many things that are happening every day The Ship Subsidy bill the Currency bill the 25th Infantry fight the Deep Waterways Congress the Jap an row the Bailey case and the coal lands inquiry as well as Secretary Bonapartes report and a number of minor matters are all very urgent 1 to the front It is safe to say that some of them will soon become exhausted and dropped to the rear but at the present moment there is plenty doing One of the most talked about al though not the most important propositions is the possible new Japan ese treaty but there is no likelihood of such a document being submit ted to the Senate until the question of the Japanese school children in San Francisco is settled What people of the Pacific coast want is a Japanese treaty on the same basis as that with China to exclude Japanese laborers There is no likelihood that Japan would ever consent to such an agreement Certainly it cannot be brought up until the qUes tion of school exclusion is settled to the satisfaction of the westerners it is not likely that Japan would consent to an exclusion act even if it came to entirely breaking ofrdiplo matic relations Perhaps the next matter of gener al interest is that of the inheritance tax Representative Perkins of New York has already introduced a bill which he believes is along the line that the President intends Briefly it contemplates levy ing a tax ranging from 75 cents on S100 up to 500 in every 100 on large legacies The sliding scale is arranged something in this way where the legacy does not exceed 25000 and the beneficiary is a lenial ancestef wife brother or sister of the deceased the tax is only 75 cents on a 100 where the bene ficiary is a descendent of a brother or sister the tax is 150 on a 100 where the beneficiary is a brother or sister oi the father or mother or a descendent of a brother or sister the tax is 3 on a 100 As the relationship becomes more distant the tax increases up to 500 on a 10- 0fre the money is left to n person who not a blood relation On bequests to religious literary or char itable organizations and to educa tional institutions no taxes are levied unless the bequest is more than 10000 There is an additional provision for an increase in the tax up to sums in excess of 30000000 at this point the tax would amount to 25 per cent or onefourth of the total bequest In order to prevent undue hardship in realizing on es tates where much money is needed to meet the tax the bill provides for deferred payment of taxes up to three years The deferred payment drawing interest at six per cent This it will be seen provides Against sacrificing lands or securi ties where a large estate has to be settledIt not known just what is going to be done with the elastic currency bill It is understood that Senator Aldrich is now at work on such a measure and it will be presented at an early day The bill is supposed to embody all the recommendations of the Currency Commission which recently met at Washington The measure stands a fighting show for jpassage but the press of other bus iness is rather against it A very interesting device was installed in the Capitol this week by which it will be possible for a member to sit in his committee room and hearby telephone all the proceedings on the floor of the House or Senate The new machine is merely an adaptation of the old microphone which has been known to sceintists for the past fifteen I years but its practical application i in the Capitol is a new development and if it is permanently installed may result in Congressmen never having to go to the floor of the House or Senate but gleaning all their impressions of the debates from microphone conversations and a perusal of the Congressional I record OLD LAND MARK Esquire J S Vaughts Long Ser vice as Freight and Mall tar rier For Hartford- I Bent with age frail before time JISon our streets was for almost a half century closely connected with the business affairs of Hartford From the early times when the old E p1 railroad was first built he carried the mail for 22 years from Beaver 10nKerIed for him that he never missed a train luring all these years no mat ter how deep the mud nor how cold the weather The trains might fail but Vaughts stage never Often in those days when wagons were not to bo had for a song he would repair his vehicle with hickory withes or transfer his passen gers to a wagon borrowed from some farmer on tne road but he always came driving in under the whip in time for the train He never thought of charging for carrying small parcels and the poor who did not have the price were carried on Vaughts stage anyway He has given away hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars in accommodations to the people of Hartford and their ancestors He was never known to charge a minister bus fare if he knew it Upon one occa sion a Catholic Priest whom he had hauled to Hartford several times handed the Squire a dollar which was the fare in those days telling him if he did not accept it he would walk It was only by this threat that he could induce him to accept the money Although he has been an indus trious man of good habits and a sworn enemy of intemperance he has never accumulated money This has doubtless been because of his Ifree heartedness and lax methods with those for whom he has worked Now in his declining years when almost helpless he is practically without means among a people for whom he has worn out his life This article was not prompted by Sqnire Vaught nor written for that purpose but we would be glad to aid in any movement looking to the comfort to this probably the most conspicous citizen landmark in our town Card of Thanks The Bazar given by The New Church Society of tlje Methodist church began last Monday and closed Friday night It was a

PrlsontII The Court down an opinion last Saturday reII versing the judgment of the Ohio I Circuit Court and gave R Flem Stevens a new trial I It will be remembered that Stevens McHenryII a ensued and Stevens killed him This was in the spring of 1905 Stevens was indicted for wilful mur der andat the August term of the Ohio Circuit Court 1905 he was triedand found guilty of man slaughter and sentenced to two years in the penitentiary Stevens claimed that he killed Growbarger eIthis judgment court holds that- on arresting officer though he may not have any reason to fear death or bodily harm at the hands of the person whom he is endeavoring to take into custody has the right to use such force as is reasonably nec essary to overcome the man who resist him though he would have had np right to shoot if the prisoner had gotten away from him and fleeing to escape The opinion of the court was delivered by Judge Settle On appeal of the case to the appellate court alleged error in the instruction were relied on for re versal In sustaining the conten tion of Stevens as to certain of the instructions the court says it was error to confine his right to kill deceased to the single ground of self defnse In a paragraph the opinion reads Though he may not have hadapy reason to fear death or bod ily harm at the hands of the deceas ed if the latter was attempting to release himself from arrest by forci bly overpowering appellant the lat ter had the right to use such force as was reasonably necessary to over come that being used by deceased to effect his release even to the extent of shooting and killing the lat ter if it reasonably appeared to ap pellant that Was the only way to prevent his release from appellants custodY though he would have had no right to shoot deceased if he had gotten away from him and was fleeing to escape This isa sweeping victpry for Stevens and will probably result in his ultimate acquittal It will be necessary however for him to have another trial which will probably be held next May the case not stand ing for hearing at an earlier date It is reported that an effort will be made to release Stevens on bond but it is the general opinion of many of the lawyers here that this cannot be legally done until the mandate of the Court of Appeals is regularly filed in open court and an order of release made r SMALLHOUS Dec 8Oppie the

alleged to have for some time past been conducting a house of ill fame The crowd was well sup plied with whiskey and all seemed to have partaken freely thereof They engaged in playing cards which resulted in a general row which ended in Whites drawing his knife and slashing his opponents throat Ralph lingered until 2 oclock Tuesday morning when he died White only made one slash with his knife He was prevented from using it further by Willie Ralph a son of the man who was killed As soon as the son saw that his father was being cut he grab bed White and wrestled with him until others came to his assistance Several other men were in the house at the time It is reported that no effort was made to procure medical aid for the injured man and he languished from 7 oclock in the evening until 2 oclock next morning before he finally died When White saw what be had done he fled from the scene and was not heard from until sometime Tuesday when Sheriff Martin was informed by telephone that he was at the home of his grandfather near Sunnydale On receiving the in formation Deputy Sheriff L P Crowder left at once for Sunnydale where he found White and took him into custody He was at once

but few accomplish under such circumstances Hut this was not his greatest ac complishment To have qualities of mind and heart that endeared to all he came in contact with was a con dition of birth a

poor holding t times their confidence sacred although his own interests lecjuired his thought His opinion and judgment was asked in all matters of importance to his community and was always freely given He was the best friend of any man There was still another side to this r many sided man and that was the supreme love and fidelity he bore to his wife and child and the mainte tlHance of their

tortue this inflicts is proved by an experience that Sandow the strongman had in Vienna several years ago A school teacher bet him that he would not be able to let a pint of water drop by drop fall on his hand Sandow laughed at the very idea of his not being able to stand it and the test began Although tits strong man talke1and jested gayly at first it was not long until he began to show signs of

underway Of the State buildings those of Rhode Island Virginia Maryland New Jersey Pennsylvania and Ohio will be completed by January 1 The inside Inn with accommodations for more than 2500 persons

dependent persons in providing on Christmas day for their pleasure and temporal needs This however is the least manifestation of the pow er which the teaching and spirit of Christ exerts upon mankind It is especially seen in a more kindly at itude of men toward each other The millennium has not yet arrivedand the struggles between the nations and classes will continue for years but as the spirit of Him after whom Christmas is named finds lodgment in the human heart the animosities which separate men in antagonist in relations will diminish and the time will come when the Christmas spirit will be displayed during the entire year as it is now on Christmas day What the world needs most for the right solution of its serious problems is the Christmas spirit Deadly Serpent Bites Are as common in

in which Senator McCreary was sys tematically and scientifically held up and robbed Only seven of the Board were present and they were in session not exceeding half an hour Chairman McQuown stated that he had a couple of clerks canvassing the vote enunciated the belief that they would do all right and moved an adjournment as he had a train to catch That settled the counting of the returns and protest was of no availThere is not the slightest doubt in our minds having seen much of Senator McCrearys correspondence from the mountain counties that he was deliberately and with malice aforethought unfairly beaten in hese sections He was simply counted out without regard to truth honor decency or any moral reflections It is a shame and dis grace and a blot on the old Com monwealths escutchon that such things should be The machine has triumphed and its manipulators will enjoy their ill gotten gains We wish them such peace as they may find in the contemplation of their knavery and the fruits thereof j Following the Flag When our soldiers went to Cuba and the Philippines health was the most important consideration Wills T Morgan retired Commissary Sergeant U S A of Rural Route

Currents and Migration A question is now being discussed among ethnologists is to what ex tent did the great ocean currents influence the migration of mankind from continent to continent in prehistoric times The fact that a cur rent starting near the Malay penin sula and passing the seas of China and Japan crosses the Pacific to the western coast of the United States is reguarded by some as significant concerning the possibility of Asiatics having reached America by way of Pacific ocennIOther vast movement of the wat ers of the sea to which attention has recently been called in connection with this subject are the South Pa cific current which flows from South America to the Polynesian islands the middle American current which starting near Spain and the northern coast of Africa and the West Indies Land the North American current which sweeps along our eastern seaboard and then crosses over the coasts of Europe i Yt Tho Kind You Have Always Bought and which has been

tttllltle r that the practical carrying out of Its i attractive features appears simple and of no serious moment and for a mu nicipality to take over mid nm water lights sewerage and even transporta tion nppcils to taxpayers and tho trade Is male without the first assur ance that the conduct of these proper j ties will teealong practical and buss tress lines r It Is the failure to assure the prac tical that works the evil for municipal ownership Is a general ownership and n general ownership results too easily In Its being no special business of any citizen or taxpayer to look into or In qulro after tho conduct of the proper ties under control This leaves theI management to a few who soon that they have only themselves to aeII count to that people are too busy demand accountings and taxpayers accept any kind of report Just BO there Is the appearance of all being right and light water sewerage etc are given It Is this Indifference and neglect on f the part of taxpayers to take note of I municipal affairs which make munic ipal ownership of public utilities a F hazardous and expensive matter The theory of municipal ownership with its great saving to each taxpayer tho extra service given and the great prof Its resulting can all be placed In fig ures beforehand but It is a failure un less the taxpayers shall give earnest anti serious heed to the conduct of these public

that the President will be called upon to help promote the candidacy etc Now see here just such stuff has wrecked the Republican party in Kentucky many times since the war and the plain voters are tired of it and do not propose to have their ex cellent chances of winning destroy ed any more by a set of effected dic tators who want to nominate some body who would retain them or re endorse them

contending fac tions would be far better without any dictation or coercion promulgating a liberal platform uniting all men who detest the rottenness of machine rule to aid in the over throwal of gangsters and establish once more sanenesS and integrity in official authority in Kentucky Make a decent campaign that will appeal- to the masses and that Frankfort I crowd of successionists and

Kentucky CASTORIAFor I The Kind You Have Always Bought i Boars the- SiWuture of The Master SunIIt was once believed by a certain school of astronomers that the en tire starry universe revolved around a center of attraction and it was the star named Alcyons in the beau tiful group of the Pleiades that was selected by the German astrono mer Meadler as marking that great centerIt long been known however that Meadlers conclusion which was based on the apparent motions of the stars was incorrect and if any universal center exists it has not yet bcfen discovered In fact many stars seem to be moving in straight lines according to the recent obser vations of American astronomers some of the stars moving in one di rection and some in another and among them our own sun But it is possible that further observations will show that all the stars are real ly moving in curved lines In the meantime it has been found that there are certain groups or1 sets of stars that appear to together To what set if travelII sun belongs we do not yot but of late years French astrono mers have presented to the Acade my of Science good reasons for thinking that those stars whose dis tances have been measuredthat is to say those that are nearest to us group themselves around Sirius the dog star in a manner similar to to that in which the inner planets are grouped around the sun If this is correct Sirius may pos sibly be the mastersun to which our orbof today is a distant satellite An Alarming Situation Frequently results from neglect of clogged bowels and torpid liver un til constipation

reptiles every year His are so for as Iam awatfi tho only turtle farms in the world which I are highly successful In general appearance a turtle farm is at a first glance nothing but a number of rectangle ponds large and small the large ones a size of j 15000 to 20000 square feet One or more of the ponds is always rescrv ed for large breeding individuals or parents as they are oallei In Ilattoris farm a person goes around the parents pond once a day or so and covers up with wire basket all the new deposits made since the last visit Bach basket may be marked with the date if necessary This covering serves a twofold purpose the obvious one of making the place and in addition that of keept ing other females from di the same spot When hundreds or even thousands of these baskets are seen along the bank of a parents pond it is a sight to gladden the heart of an embryologist to say nothing of that of the property The matching of the eggs takes an average of sixty days The time may be considerably or lengthened according to whether the summer Is hot and the sun poursdown is strong rays day after day or whenever there is much rain and the heat is not great It may become less t nnj forty days er more that eighty days The just hatched are put in a pond by themselves and given finelychopped meat or a fish like the pilchard This is continued through Septem ber In October snapping turtles cease to take food and finally burrows into the muddy bottom of the pond to hibernate coming out only in April or May From the third to the fifth year inclusive the young need not be kept in ponds strictly according to age but maybe more or less mixed if necessary The young of these years are also the best and most delecate for and are the ones sold in the marketi In the sixth year they reached ma turity and may begin to deposit eggs although not fully vigorous till two or three years later How old these snapping turtles live to be is not known Those one foot and more in

The in carnation of Christ is the central thought in the history of the world It is the event around which all other events revolve in smaller larger circles All the great factshi history previous to His coming had reference to his advent alt the events since look back to that advent as the be ginnipgof H new qra All lines of previous history converge to the manger and the cross all lines of history since diverge from these two epochal events The birth of Christ was the beginning ofa new race 1 Jo Pi and the observance of the birth is I still the jubilee of this new race Angels joined in the advent of Christ withsolo and choral song as He left the bosom of the Father to become thuchildof Mary in the manger at Bethlehem This festival is still the joyous feast of the church It makes childhood more beautifuland i glorious and it lightens the burdens of and sorrow with its tender prophIIhope and joy in every home and heart It is prophetic of the golden agewhen Christ fhall come again when evil shall be overthrown and when the song of a redeemed humanity shall sweep over the uni niverse By the gifts which charactirize this season we commemorate Gods great gift the unspeakable gift of His son to a word lost in sin and wandering in darkness No one can rightly estimate the blessings which j low every year to all conditions of men from the tendellj memories and gentle charities called forth by the remembrance of the 1 Holy Child Jesus His birth has ex ailed the poetry the music and the art of the centuries It has changed all social customs and religious rituals It has given a new glory to human life and a new trend to eter nity This is tho time when all bit terness should be forgotten nilj family fuels reconciled and all life glorified It is unspeakably sad

sums that are invested in steam locomotives but the various successfulexperiments tried by tho great railroad compan ies leave little room for doubt that the discovery of Franklin must in evitably displace that of Watts in this field of endeavor The speed at which an electrically equipped lo comotive could be made to travel is only limited by centrifugal force but a speed of 150 to 200 miles could be maintained before thewheels would fly to pieces through the operation of this law The main prob lem is more a matter of Improving- the I road beds than the inventing of new machinery and when curves grade crossings are entirely andI nated there is no doubt that a very high rate unknown to steam locomotion will be reached with safety The engines built for the New York Central will draw a train of 435 tons I from Croton to New York tance of thirtyftur miles in fortyI five minutes This of very well within the maximum Capacity i of the locomotives During experiments made with one of these engines she ran at elghtyslx miles an hour the limit of the roadbed over which she ran otherwise a much greater speed would have been I attained Her total rated capacity- is 2200 horse power For
